    My 330i 02 had a huge leak on the driver side yesterday morning. I thought it was just motor oil because my car does leak on occasion. I went to drive it for about 10-15 min and the steering had pretty loud moaning noise but it was still driveable. Today I tried driving it again and the steering...

    My 2007 BMW 750i has a slow leak in the power steering fluid. I see it on my garage floor. It may only be a few drops but has gone on for a long time (years). I've brought it in the the dealer twice, but they can't find the leak. Any ideas where this type of leak could be coming from? Thank you

    Hi all, new to the forum and I'd like to try to fix my power steering issue myself before I result to paying a mechanic I don't know if I can trust or not. My power steering has a leak that appears to be coming from the hose that attaches to the reservoir. I'd like help on an easy way to get...

    No, this is not the typical slow leak from the bottom of the PS fluid reservoir, but it probably started that way. About a month ago, during my regular oil change, I noticed that telltale sign of PS fluid making its way down the front hose going to the radiator. No big deal. I just crank down...
